Resistance to anti-microbials is in the Top 10 threats to Global Health according to the WHO.
 
Tolerance and dependence on topical corticosteroids for various inflammatory skin conditions is on the rise

Chronic Wound Care costs the Healthcare system $3 billion and rising every year.


What can we do to make things better for our patients and healthcare system? How can we reduce the need and use of anti-biotics for minor open wounds or minor burns and sores?

Be the solution to your  patients' needs.

My name is Karen Cheah, mother to 4 boys, and community pharmacy owner in Margaret River, Western Australia since 2006.
I formulated and founded DermaGen by Botanical Chemist™ after seeing many patients in my community suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, sun-damaged skin, acne, pimples and minor wounds, cuts, grazes, sores and blisters, and I wanted to give them a natural solution that works.

Topical Steroids aren't always the answer.

As a mother and as a pharmacist, I know topical steroids aren’t always an answer to skin issues in the long run.
My own son had a really bad experience with eczema so I know first-hand how difficult it is to find products that work and deal with the symptoms effectively.

Quicker wound healing: Finally...no stinging or burning sensation on open sores with our alcohol, preservative and acid-free balms.

Once we installed a compounding room, I was able to test different formulations with my customers to find out what ingredients gave the best results. DermaGen by Botanical Chemist™ was created after a few years of research and trials of different ingredients.

Minor wounds and skin injuries heal quicker due to the anti-septic properties and antioxidant content of Manuka Oil and Bee Propolis which support skin regeneration.

We had such quick and amazing results from our customers over the 12 month period that we had to manufacture and share the range.   

Our brands mission is to continue to develop products that nourish and heal the skin barrier, strengthening the integrity of the skin barrier, rather than thinning it, so it can do it's job of protecting us against micro-organisms, allergens and environmental elements such as UV radiation.

Prevention is often be better than the cure.

We hope you'll enjoy learning about our products and sharing them with your community.  

Kind regards,
Karen Cheah
